Surnames: Mayberry, Olafson, Gilbert, Smart, Gregory, Lowe

Looking for any information on my family in Franklin (Oneida/Bingham County), Idaho. This is one of the farthest south points of Idaho at the border of Utah and once was disputed as Utah. In June 1872, Franklin was officially considered over a mile north of the border.

Joseph Younger Mayberry and Charlotte Olafson (immigrated from Sweden) married Jan 4, 1864 near Salt Lake City (mill Creek), Utah.

Some of their children:

Josephine Olafson Mayberry was born on January 30, 1865.
(There may be a plaque that says she was the first white woman born there??? I AM SPECIFICALLY LOOKING FOR THIS. A PICTURE WOULD BE NICE, IF IT EXISTS.) Midwifed by Mrs Gilbert. Christened by Thomas Smart.

Thomas Henry Mayberry was born on January 30, 1865.
Christened by Robert Gregory.

Charlotte Molinda Mayberry was born on November 12, 1869. Christened by Thomas Lowe Senior.

In 1860, 60 families lived and gathered together to protect their community from the "shadow of a large hill known as Lookout Mountain, a local high point used by scouts to watch for marauding bands of Shoshone Indians."

In 2010, "a group gathered at the old Muddy River, the stream that flows nearby on its way to the Bear River which is now known as the Cub River. And it’s Little Mountain (or possibly Mount Smart to some old-timers) that now overlooks the town directly to its east, a prominent “1860 F” branded high on its slopes." http://www.cachevalleymagazine.com/?p=213
